Now I feel officially an inhabitant of Leuven: I just picked up my new identity card at the town hall. And for the first time I have an electronical identity card as well. I don't know what you can do with it except consulting my official registries from the government (which is interesting for 5 minutes and then that's it) and getting an electronic signature. But I am glad that I don't have to wait anymore until 2012 when my other ID would have expired and hopefully more applications will come. At least it is smaller than the old types!
